There are some new developments in access to stations across Leeds and West Yorkshire.
To start with, a new national access map has been launched by the Rail Delivery Group.
People can use the national map to find out if stations have step-free or partial step free access, accessible toilets and changing places and for information on alternative accessible stations.
You can find the map at: http://accessmap.nationalrail.
If you’re travelling by train in the England, Scotland or Wales, you can use the map to help plan your journey.
There is also a link to the National Rail website giving more details about the station, such as parking and a station map.
Building work at Leeds Station
If you’re planning on using Leeds station this year, it’s worth noting that there’s building improvement work carrying on at the moment.
You can keep updated about changes in parking, toilets, taxis and more on Network Rail’s website: Leeds station improvements https://www.networkrail.co.uk/

Access for All
More work is ongoing to improve access across the local network, with Access for All funding helping changes at Menston and Todmorden, as well as plans being progressed at Garforth station.
The programme is designed to provide disabled rail passengers with better access at stations as well as benefiting people with health conditions, older people with mobility impairments and people travelling with children, heavy luggage or shopping.
